Biography[edit]

Dota 1[edit]

KingJ was part of the legendary EHOME squad that dominated DotA during 2010. He left EHOME in January 2011 to join Team DK.[1] However, DK performed poorly during the following months, and KingJ left the team in August 2011, instead joining Nirvana.cn as a replacement for Yao.[2] As the transfer happened only a few days before The International 2011, KingJ was unable to attend the event.[2] With a potent lineup, the Dota scene expected a lot from Nirvana.cn but alas, it was not to be as the team disbanded in January 2012.[3]

Dota 2[edit]

Following Nirvana.cn's disbandment, KingJ together with 357 (aka QQQ) and Dai (aka X!!) went looking for a team to play Dota 2 with. After a short trial period with an organization called "Canis Lupus Campestris" or "CLC",[4] the trio joined EHOME in April 2012.[5] They attended The International 2012 and achieved a respectable 5-6th place.[6] After his friends X!! and QQQ left EHOME for Team DK, KingJ also left the team, stating that the two friends had been the only reason keeping him there.[7]

On the 20th of March, he was announced as part of For.Love along with former DK player Zippo.[6] However, citing a poor training regiment, he was announced to have left For.Love, just 27 days after joining, and has joined TongFu, replacing yAobAi.[8]

TongFu would prove to be the most successful team up to that point in KingJ's career. Winning Dota 2 Super League and placing 4th at The International 2013 got them in total over $280,000 in prize money during summer 2013. However, after TI3 their roster changed, and KingJ moved to RisingStars.[9]
